'Good Housekeeping Cookbook' features easy recipes for busy lives

The new Good Housekeeping Cookbook by Susan Westmoreland has more than 1,200 triple-tested recipes to help you get through every meal of the day—easy recipes for busy lives.

The Prosciutto Spinach Frittata muffins are perfect for brunch. If you don't use them all, they can go in the fridge for up to a week and then be reheated in the microwave in just a few seconds.

The Pancetta Chicken on a Bed of Roasted Greens is a two-sheet pan dinner that bakes in about 30 minutes.

Susan says no matter where they are in their lives, most people don't want to spend a lot of time on weeknight dinners. Susan says sheet pans are a great way to simplify those weeknight dinners.

Susan has been the food director at the Good Housekeeping Institute for over 20 years and has packed this book with some of her favorite meals, most of them pretty manageable.

A lot of the recipes have just 10 to 15 minutes of prep time. There are things like risotto, which take longer, but Susan says there are also delicious quick meals, like mussels, that cook in only 5 minutes.

There are even some twists on traditional holiday foods. Cranberry sauce is a Thanksgiving classic. Everyone wants it, but Susan says, plain cranberry sauce and orange cranberry sauce are getting a little tired.

What about one with ginger and lemon, or some pickled jalapeno, or even some star anise which adds wonderful warmth without too much sweetness?

The book offers all of these ideas, Susan says, and they take just about 5 minutes.
